11:15 pm
million for the nine-county area. that's down half a million. home prices are expected to remain soft in the next few months, due to layoffs in the tech sector and more affordable homes elsewhere. one step closer to a citywide autonomous taxi service in san francisco. waymo has expanded to more parts of the city. it will offer rides in the mission, dog patch, and hills. company rolled out new updates, including parallel parking. the service is only available to riders who join the waymo one program. well, final good-bye to an iconic landmark in santa cruz county. the pier at sea cliff in apptos was severely damaged. the decision was made to take it down. today people gathered for a farewell ceremony, many have special memories tied to that pier. >> lot of wonderful places to see and experience, but it's something about this place that
11:16 pm
when all that wandering's done you feel it. it's just so comfortable. >> there's just so many memories there that seeing it gone, it's kind of an icon for this area. i mean, people come from, i think, all over just to walk on the pier and fish. >> it sure is. the sea cliff state beach pier was built in the 1930s. demolition begins next week. but not before a local artist spent time crafting his own farewell to the seacliff pier. this is sand art, believe it or not, created by brighton. these images of the intricate patterns in the sand were taken by a fan of his who sent up his drones to get an aerial view. >> that is unreal. >> you might be able to see the patterns of i will remember you. a spectacular sight for a pier that have given generations spectacular views of the pacific. >> very cool, well done.
11:17 pm
what you just said a moment ago caught our attention. the temperature now, which is cold, is going to be the high? >> yeah, by thursday. so speaking of -- >> here we go again. >> beach weather tomorrow and monday should be okay. don't be near the coast. gusty wind, a big drop in temperatures. one of the stranger temperature weeks in the seven-day forecast is headed our way. the good news for weekend plans for the holiday on monday is that the warmest days are right now at least through about monday. 51 degrees currently in san francisco. and seeing some low 40s outside. san rafael, 43 degrees. similar temperatures around devlin. and the reason why it's not too uncomfortable is you don't have a lot of wind. now, imagine when these temperatures drop into the 30s and 40s at night, later next week, we will be seeing winds at 15 to 30 miles per hour. so we're going to get some canadian air conditioning blowing around the bay area next week. 49 in san jose. starting to see upper 30s inland. this is the trend we'll see into tomorrow morning. patchy frost possible in some of the inland valleys.
11:18 pm
quickly warming into the 60s around noon and high temperatures tomorrow afternoon feeling like spring. upper 60s san jose, mid-60s around oakland. notice monday similar conditions. but everything starts to change as you get into tuesday. gusty wind and a lot cooler by wednesday. then talking about precipitation type gets interesting towards the middle part of next week. so here is that canadian cold front that's dropping down out of the north leading to cooler changes, and eventually potentially i think wind advisory level winds or high wind watch material along the coast during the day tuesday. we'll watch that. in behind it comes the colder air. so notice the futurecast, starting as we get into wednesday. the hilltops and mountains likely begin to see accumulating snowfall. this would include the santa cruz mountains, mount hamilton, the diablo range, up near the north bay perhaps near mount tam. that's a possibility wednesday night into thursday. that's why your temperatures are
11:19 pm
dropping into the upper 40s for highs. right there wednesday and thursday in the seven-day forecast. next weekend looks dry but still chilly. but look at that pattern as we wrap up the month. kind of a stormy finish to february, and a roller coaster ride of temperatures ahead in the seven-day forecast. so outdoor plans next couple of days just fine if you want to get outside. and then tuesday and wednesday bundle up. showers progressively lower snow levels and highs next weekend as the skies clear 20s and 30s. that is quite a swing from 60s and 70s to 20s and 30s at night, highs in the 40s. >> enjoy the 60s, and the 50s while we have them. all right, rob, thanks. anthony joining us for sports, and what a story at the nba dunk contest. where'd this come from? >> it's lost its shine over the last two years, but i think it's
